Challenging Learningとの共同プロジェクト


English follows Japanese…

そこで私は尊敬する教育者、James Nottingham氏と、そのチームの力を借りて、ここからまずは3年間の継続プロジェクトとして教育改革のための具体的なプロジェクトに取り組むことにしました。


(1) Students who have a Growth Mindsetグロースマインドセットを持っている
(2) Students who are active ambassadors of their beliefs and values自分たちの信念や価値(伝統文化など)を伝えていける
(3) International-Minded learners who are willing and able to learn from others オープンマインドで仲間からも積極的に学ぼうとする

そして、今はBaseline Evaluationといって、自分たちの現在地知るためのデータ集めをしています。

具体的にはChallenging Learningのチームメンバーが、サニーサイドのリーダー、職員、生徒達にインタビューをして、どういう考え方をしているか、例えば、「学びとは何だと思うか?」「挑戦すると聞くとどんなイメージを持つか」「知識とスキル、どちらが大切だと思うか」など、なかなか難しいことを聞かれます。


At Sunnyside International School, we are aiming for “Education for the future”, we would like to keep changing for our students.
But as it is the case with any other schools, teachers are constantly occupied with the daily routine, and the reality is, it is not easy to simply create time and opportunity to start new project.

So I have decided to ask Mr.James Nottingham and his team for the support.
The team members are located mainly in the UK, but also in Australia, America.
We meet online to discuss how we can proceed with this project.

So here are some photos from the session last week.
We first started with deciding our big 3 aims. After a long discussion amongst our
staff members, we have come to;
(1) Students who have a Growth Mindset
(2) Students who are active ambassadors of their beliefs and values
(3) International-Minded learners who are willing and able to learn from others

And now we are going through the phase called “baseline evaluation”, this is to know where we are right now.
Challenging learning team had meetings with our senior leaders, classroom teachers, students, to get the idea of our thinking.
Questions asked were various, for example, “What is “learning” for you?””What is “challenge for you?””Which is more important, knowledge or skill?”
some of them were “hard” questions, but I think our teachers and students were confident to speak for themselves.

We were also asked to take 5 min long video of various classrooms, and take photos of our displays, etc.
Challenging Learning team will analyse all what we have submitted and they will write a summary report for us then we start from there!!

Challenging Learning team members are all so dedicated, we have to get over the time difference when meeting online, but they do everything they can do for us and I’m so grateful.
And James Nottingham is such inspirational leader. I admire his ideas as educator in a great deal.

So this project will continue for at least 3 years, but I would to keep sharing our progress with our school community.
